'ZERO LATITUDE' - Armin Keplinger
OPENING: November 28, 1-6pm;
OPENING RECEPTION: November 28, 6-9pm;
EXHIBITION DATES: November 28 - December 1, 1-7pm;
ZERO LATITUDE premieres a complimenting new body of artworks by Armin Keplinger, including the VR-installation 'ms-R' alongside kinetic and live-triggered sound sculptures.
While melting together digital and analogue, the show investigates different states of void and infinity, the collapse of unstable conditions - and their tipping point - as well as ever-changing sculptures over time.
Framed around these key themes there is Keplinger’s latest fatigue in VR 'ms-R', featuring a moon-sliced ring with zero latitude. As the ring moves slowly in circle around the participant’s view with subtle light and movements, 'ms-R' aims to send the viewer in a journey to black-end spaces.
The exhibition is curated by George Vitale.
